Census details

Some aspects of Eliza Burrage's life. Sarah died after giving birth to her 4th child. Birth was 9th November 1862, and there was a detailed inquest, as the Church Warden of Burgh Castle alleged that it was due to the neglect of the Doctor, Dr Arnot of Gorleston.

The relationships revealed within the report of the inquest, with some obvious and corroborating conclusions made from my existing data, are -

Mother of Sarah = Margaret BURRAGE
Aunt of Sarah = Mary BURRAGE. Margaret was married to BURRAGE, so the aunt is either an unmarried sister of Sarah's father, or is married to one of Sarah's father's brothers. Mary 'had a large family', so it must be the latter.
Half Brother of Sarah = William BRACKENBURY
Sister of Sarah = Eliza RUDD. This is Eliza BURRAGE b 1824, married Charles RUDD 1845. Oddly, by the time this inquest was held, she was married to Mr FRANKISH. Ample proof of this is in the 1861 census, where she is found as a married woman named FRANKISH, with 3 children, 2 named RUDD and the last 8 month old Margaret FRANKISH
Husband of Sarah = Joshua CLARKE

The child, a daughter, also died in the same quarter.
